    somebody posted this link:
    http://www.ucas.com/about_us/media_e.../2011/20111024

    just realised - Table 1b says applications are down by 0.8% but if you scroll down to Table 5, it says applications are down by 9% ... =S

    don't know what to believe.

    Or that they've found Barts from here and are all typical TSR A* legends.

    They've been 100%ing exams since they were in the womb.
    They even managed to work out their own sex before the ultrasound woman could get the gel on.

    If those are the people applying then they'll probably have to social skills of a dead fish and therefore won't pass the interview stage

    But they'll still only interview 800
    so if they get 800 social retards then they'll pick the top X.

    Bath is as real as Santa. I WON'T LET IT DIE.
    Just like Santa, anyone who tells you it's not real is lying. I know those tiny little elves are pouring through applications at this very moment.

    Oh god, I just have visions of admission tutors sitting with a naughty or nice list of applicants coming up to Christmas/interviews, with their own version of the song going on in the background ' they know if you've been volunteering, they know if you've retakes, they know if UKCAT is passed or failed .. so you better watch out, you better not cry, better not pout I'm telling you why, admission tutors are rejection us now'

    Ok I think I have too much imagination lol

    On a side not my CRB check has finally come back so I can finally start at the nursing home. It took over a month and I was beginning to worry I might of commited an attack of terroism or something in my sleep! Thankfully, it appears not. I'm squeaky clean yay!
